Well, today I finally got my home made planner finished. Yes, it’s veered well away from my original ideas as I ran into problems. I’ve ended up with a kind of “Filodori” – basically just the cover and the ring mechanism. There’s a lot of bling. An awful lot of bling in fact. I got carried away decorating 😀
The first part of the added decoration was to die cut some leather offcuts to make “hinges” which were then given the copper gilt cream treatment. These are held on with tiny rivets and a bit of superglue.
There’s a square pocket on the outside front cover. This is attached with 4 emerald green rivets and a line of superglue around all but the top edge giving a pocket to slip stuff in or even a small pen holder.
I did some more die cutting of offcuts – a key and an escutcheon. The key is on the front leather flyleaf and the escutcheon covers the area around the stud fastener.
Total cost around £22.
